-Re: how to specify MultipleOutputs, MultipleInputs in using Avro mapred API
If I got your issue right, all you need to ensure is that both your
mappers emit the same "type" of keys and values out. This can easily
be done by implementing a custom Avro Mapper [which reads records from
avro files, processes them and spews out legal K/V types instead of
avro datums, such that they match your HBase mapper's collected
Your reducer shouldn't be bothered about avro/etc then.
* Note: You may also use avro as intermediate K/V format, but it might
require some extra work to do so :)
